In exactly one month, LeSean McCoy will turn 30 years old. For those of us who already hit that milestone, we know that one's best years begin at the age of 30.
Some of us even went skydiving to mark the occasion. However, the NFL doesn't always see it the same way for running backs.
The question is, do the Bills?
Last year McCoy thought he had five good seasons left in him but the age of 30 tends to be the tipping point in the careers of running backs in the NFL. This means we should learn a lot about McCoy's future this upcoming season.
Tuesday during the Bills mandatory minicamp, McCoy said that sticking around long enough to find out if he has five good years left depends on winning and a couple of personal goals.
" ....the way they view me is like the 'old head baller'. It drives me. It does because I remember being 25, 24 looking at the older guys, saying 'I'm going to catch him, I want to be better than him,'" stated McCoy. "Now, it's like reversed. Now it's like, okay, I'm still an elite player, but the young guys are creeping on me, so I've got to continue to do better and do better. Stack my numbers up, stack my wins up. Just make that portfolio of just a baller."
